We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest British Birds greeting card collection which features delicate, hand illustrated designs that have been inspired by mornings spent in the garden, watching the birds as they flutter around the meadows catching insects to feed to their newly hatched chicks, whilst being surrounded by the beautiful flora and fauna of the English countryside.
Watching the birds is one of my favourite pastimes, as they are a reminder that life can be slow and simple, and as we notice their presence all around us, they show us what it means to be alive on this earth. Birds are present in the current moment, with no concept of past and future, therefore the here and now is what always takes precedence; such a wonderful way to exist in the world.
Observing their beauty was such a joy whilst creating this new collection of garden birds, woodpeckers, owls and swans, and I feel that the collection is my dedication to honouring the beauty of some of Britain’s most loved creatures.
The luxury card collection comprises 20 different card designs, created in my intricate and distinctive style of pen, ink and watercolour painting. With card designs perfect for any occasion, the new collection can be used to send a special note to a loved one, wish good luck or say a special thank you. They can also be cherished forever by framing and displaying as wall art to decorate your home!
Each card design features an assemble of wild flowers that are scattered around the birds, forming a dome of flora and fauna that capture the beauty, essence and magic of the British countryside.
As we know that it is difficult to choose just one bird as your favourite, we have also created a special set of 8 luxury greetings cards, where you can choose 8 different garden bird cards from the collection to create your own bespoke pack of cards.

All cards have been left blank inside for you to leave your own personal message and are proudly made in England, using the finest paper and card stocks, sourced locally to us in the beautiful Lake District.
The beautifully classic greetings card collection aims to bring joy to it’s recipients with it’s charming and magical designs that feature a selection of some of Britain’s most loved birds.
We hope that you love our new collection!
